    Limited menu; not as shown online. Food was mediocre and expensive for what it was. Next to no lobster in the lobster ravioli and the vodka sauce was heavy, thick, too spiced and overpowered the ravioli. The lobster crab cakes had too much filler and not enough crab or lobster. Caesar salad was average. The burata appetizer was okay. The pistachio salmon was good. We ate outside where us was quiet, but the service was slow and inattentive. Will not return.

    This is a terrific property in a perfect location. We visit by boat when we can and enjoy poolside bar (when open) and docking, but this was our first time for dinner and stayed two nights in the hotel. Honestly, we had low expectations but hoped new hotel ownership might have made improvements. The restaurant just isn't quite where they would like to be for the price point that property requires. Creative menu but the execution does not deliver, especially for $40-$45 entrees. The service was OK, and the server (very honestly) suggested only fish as it's "never returned to the kitchen" which is a bad omen. Crab stuffed grouper had undiscernible flavors and the risotto had a nice taste but looked like mashed potatoes. At the bar afterwards, Bulleit Bourbon on the rocks at $18 each was just insulting as an entire 750ml bottle is $19.99. Wishing the best for this restaurant but right now it's falling well short.

    We were seated in an empty dining area that took the girl 15 minutes to figure out where to seat us. We sat for 25+ minutes without a menu or a drink OR any contact whatsoever. We left because it appeared nobody was working there after we were seated. My girlfriend and her friend had the very same experience a year earlier, so NOTHING has changed. NEVER going back, ever.

    Food was only warm. Steak beyond overcooked. Cocktail was poorly made. All of that not withstanding, my rating would not have been as low as it was if our sever had made it an enjoyable experience. She did not know the menu at all. She did not know what selections were on the charcuterie board that evening. She could not answer anything without having to ask. When returning to the table with an answer, she blamed the chef and changes in the kitchen. Late to the table with a drink....blamed the bartender. The manager needs to demand more of his wait staff. Totally unexpected at an establishment charging prices at the level of Castile. Rarely have I left a dining experience upset about the amount of the bill in relation to the experience as I did on this evening.

    Absolute worst experience at a restaurant that came highly recommended! Took my family for Christmas dinner! Food was terrible! The whole event was pathetic.I was looking forward to the dessert for my wife , then was informed by server that our pre selected desert was no longer available. That was the last straw… low and behold, they found more of the desert!

    Wow! Fantastic meal! Castile used to be my favorite place to eat on the beach years ago when they first opened. They went down hill for a while with some change of ownership and chefs, however last nights meal was really great and everyone in our party of five raved about their food. We will definitely put this back into our regular rotation when we’re in town visiting. Well done Castile!

    Sitting in the bar area, our waiter was also the bartender. He was personable and attentive. The appetizers were vey good and the food tasty. A mistake was promptly corrected. The drinks were measured and not what would be called a good pour. The Latin music band was enjoyable and we could converse without shouting. We will return!

    Had an amazing experience on Thanksgiving with my boyfriend. The three course meal with the choice of holiday sides was delicious. Not one bad thing about the meal. The drinks were delicious, the view was gorgeous, and our server Dori was great to interact with. We headed to the rooftop afterwards for the sunset and the bar staff there was amazing as well. We will be back!

    We were told there would be live music even when I called about the reservation; however, the owners had changed and they hadn’t had live music in a while. I was disappointed since I particularly picked this restaurant because of that. Other than that the although the staff was short staffed they still were friendly and attentive. One thing I was surprised was that they didn’t bring out a free dessert for my husband’s bday. If we are in the area again we might stop by for the rooftop views on the 5th floor.

    A lovely evening with good food. Our waiter was very nice and attentive but told us everything on the menu was available and the first two things we chose we not available. We were pleased with the 2nd choices. Lots of confusion on the bill but he happily straightened it out.,. But it took 3 times! Valet parking is great. We will definitely go back PS excellent Caesar Salad!

    We arrived early for our reservation and waited in the bar area as the hostess said our table was not ready. No one spoke to us at the bar table. Went back to the hostess stand after 20 minutes and were seated even though half to 2/3 of the tables were vacant. The food was good however our waitress NEVER checked on us after taking our order. The expediter brought our meal and refilled water after we asked. We stood at the bar since our waitress literally never returned! She saw us standing at the bar and delivered our check to us there. Never asked how our meal was. Completely inattentive!! Good food terrible service

    We were visiting with someone with peanut allergy, and we were told the oil was mixed, so he had to avoid anything fried. Also, there were no gluten free options...even for someone with just a sensitivity, so most of the tapas were off the table. In a restaurant attached to a hotel, and one that is not inexpensive, one would expect better accommodations. Also, service was slow, but that's was probably due to understaffing, which is a common problem everywhere locally.

    Had hoped for a much better experience. This was my first visit. The ambiance is great. Sat at an outside table which was wonderful. On the night of my visit (a Wednesday) the place was not busy. On this evening my guest and I only had drinks and apps (dynamite shrimp, crispy cauliflower and the cheese/charcuterie board) and all were very tasty. My only issue with this experience was with the service. The delivery time of the food and drinks was quite slow. Apparently our server was also responsible for bringing food up to the rooftop bar and she explained that was why things were slow in coming to our table. The food and ambiance justify another visit.
